With Brooklyn Rider String Quartet
After premiering the Impostor Concerto, and getting a record deal, the question was – what else would go on the record?
I decided to write a piece for banjo and string quartet, kindly commissioned by Butler University.
After doing my research on string quartets, a powerful tide pushed me towards Brooklyn Rider, one of the very special groups playing in this format today. They play a lot of new music, and they were perfectly suited to interpret my mongrel composition Night Ride Over Water.
The format of banjo with string quartet was so compelling that we decided to create a whole night of music and tour with it.
The piece can be heard on The Impostor CD.
